the economy added 171,000 jobs last month. the unemployment rate ticked up to 7.9%. here's what president obama said about these numbers this morning in ohio. >> today our businesses have created nearly 5.5 million new jobs, and this morning we learned that companies hired more workers in october than at any time in the last eight months. >> i want to talk about the economics and the politics of the report with our chief business correspondent ali velshi and john avalon. they're in ohio talking to the voters. ali, let's start with you since you have an economics, numbers guy here. >> yeah. >> we looked at this, and the economy stated by cnn money, they were twpg 125,000 jobs, so this number was higher at 171,000. so you have figures in august and september, also higher than we thought. what do we say about the overall growth and the health of the economy and the recovery? >> you and i talked about this before. i like the jobs creation or job loss numbers. the establishment survey more than i like the unemployment number. by the way, i feel the same way about it when it's low and when it's
on the economy right before the election are not encouraging for the president. good morning, everyone. do you want gas? in the new york area, you will have to wait for hours, you want power? millions will wait for days, but it's the supply of gas that is today's crisis. driving to work will be almost impossible for millions. piled on top of the mass power outage, the whole nation's economy will surely take a hit. new numbers today, paint a grim picture on employment and it's a snapshot of the economy which remains weak. the latest fox news poll shows a dead heat and the candidates are tied five days to the election. we are we go. another big day. "varney & company" is about to begin. he loves risk. but whether he's climbing everest, scuba diving the great barrier reef with sharks, or jumping into the marke he goes with people he trusts, which is why he trades with a company that doesn't nickel and dime him with hidden fees. so he can worry about other things, like what the market is doing and being ready, no matter what happens, which isn't rocket science. it's just common sense, from td amer
today. some of it supposed to have come out earlier in the week, was delayed. shows an economy building momentum. that is at least until sandy came. steve leisman here. steve, is sandy going to slam the brakes on this slightly upward arc we're seeing in the economy? >> it is definitely going to have an impact on the economy. today we got a read on the economy ahead of sandy giving us really a baseline. that baseline was a little bit better than economists originally thought. at almost every count. perhaps the miss here -- what a nice graphic they made. perhaps the miss there was because they don't know how to estimate the new methodology. but that was better than expected. claims a little bit better than expected. ism above expectations also. construction spending powered by residential spending. government spending was tailing off there. consumer sentiment missed, but that was better than it was in the prior month. take a look at the ism manufacturing index in detail. we had this swoon, june, july, august, now it's popped back up above 50 for two months in a row. early to call a trend
's needed to run their businesses, something we talked a lot about. the economy has seen more focus on the consumer rebound than on a business rebound. one wonders when and if business were to get in the game those numbers would even be better. >> that could all change in five days with the election next tuesday. long-term unemployed, 14,600. marginal relief on that front. in terms of the long-term unemployment out of work for a year or more 3.57 million. a year ago 4.boy 1 million. so even those people who have been out of work for a very long time starting to get some nibbles. at least that's what it appears. more reaction to the numbers from dean mackey joining us from barclay's. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> any hair on the numbers, so to speak, as far as you can tell? >> i think this was a followed report when you look at the broad categories of job growth, when you look at the participation rate rise. the only underlying softness was in ourly earnings, but that really doesn't change the sfoer of where we've been. boug bottom line, the labor market has picked up some
it's going to have a big impact on the economy and the economy is improving, the administration says, in the final reports before the election, a surprising better than 170,000 jobs added to the economy. unemployment rate at 7.9%. back with us is jack welch who might quibble with that rate in and about the last time, but still don't necessarily buy these numbers. >> neil, look, the real unemployment rate, if you take the last ten years prior to the 2009 recession, the 10-year average of let's call it the participation rate, how many people are working temporarily, full-time, and you take that number and take the ten year average and ran it now, work for us, you would have an unemployment rate close to 11% and that's what the real unemployment rate that people are feeling out there, not discouraged workers walked away all that stuff, but that's the real rate. now, this number of 7.8, that popped in the other day just didn't make any sense, i mean, you had a number that suddenly had more people added since ronald reagan's biggest month in june of '83 in september. that didn't-- >> so,
%. they did beat estimates even though the cfo said he's seen evidence of a weak economy all around us. you were talking about climate change and this issue of whether it's responsible for some of the weather changes that we've seen. munich re had created a bit of a firestorm when it put out a report noting that north america was seeing mcs in unusual events and attributed it to climate change. it caused quite a stir at the time. back to you. >>> coming up, chris christie touring the carnage. millions still without power. mass transit trying to get back to line. we'll get a progress report. >>> this morning not a lot of movement. yesterday the sale. things orderly in the first day of trading since everything was shut down because of sandy. this morning futures down by about two points. nasdaq up by about 2 1/4 points. >>> jfk and newark airports both operational on wednesday, but saw very few flights. jpk is seeing more arrivals than departures, but net back to normal. courtney reagan is at laguardia this morning. >> reporter: good morning. so we haven't yet seen a plane take off here. the
of that on top of already tough, tough economy. major department stores can derive 10% of sales from manhattan locations. a very big impact expected on the economy. the labor department releasing the final weekly jobs report before the presidential election. it shows 358,000 americans filing for first time jobless benefits. that is drop of just 9000. take a look back so you can keep it into perspective there is look since the start of the recession. we have little change since january when weekly jobless claims dropped to 360,000. tomorrow we get the last big monthly jobs report as the october number comes in. let's bring in fox business network stuart varney for a look at this. good mornings, stuart. what lies ahead? >> that is a difficult question to answer. looking at the numbers we received today from a couple of reports you can probably say tomorrow 8:30 eastern time there were roughly, 120,000 new jobs created last month. that is a very rough estimate looking at today's numbers. now let me go into today's numbers, they are politically loaded because they present a snapshot of the economy
days. but tomorrow will mark a big step toward normalcy for america an its economy as the stock market gets set to open once again. the big question now is, what happens when that opening bell rings tomorrow morning after such a long hiatus and such a disastrous storm? >> really unprecedented. we have team coverage today. scott cohn with the latest on the flooding near wall street. courtney reagan is monitoring the power outages. jackie deangelis is in a new jersey town. we kick it off with bob. you spoke a short time ago with the ceo of the nyc. can it really be business as usual tomorrow? what are you expecting? >> that's what they're hoping for, maria. they said the magic words. trading will resume at the nyse and other exchanges. duncan told me a short while ago it was all subpoeystems go. >> we've had people on site throughout the evening, and we g got the report early this morning that there was no issue with the building. it had not been compromised. so once we heard that, we have been operatie ining under the assumption we would be under normal business trading tomorrow. >> mea
for unfair china trading practices. these are important things because the economy is the number one issue. >> you're trying to cram a lot of things in in these last five days. >> chris, let's get to it. we're going to be listening to the president later this hour. his campaign describing the speech as a closing argument to the voters. what tone does he need to strike? chris, does he really need to keep it respectful or hit back against mitt romney? >> you know, i don't think he necessarily needs to hit back. i personally think, no surprise, that it was a mistake for governor romney to come out as harsh as he did. when there's a national crisis, something as significant and so many people have been affected by hurricane sandy, the last thing people think about and talk about and want to focus on is politics. you have to be very careful about that. i think the president is going to come out, especially in light of what you've seen over the last few days, and strike a more positive, unifying tone. i think it's a smart strategy, especially coming down to the last days. let's be honest. i thin
. and it turned around because republican governors came into those states, got the economy improving again. think about how much better it could be if we put a republican governor, a former republican governor, in charge as our president. that's the clear difference. at the convention when i spoke, i mentioned that night at my speech that if you compare all the states in america with the ones led by republicans compared to those led by democrats, the unemployment rate in republican led students was one point lower than those led by democrats. and voters understand that.was than those led by democrats. and voters understand that. >> is the hurricane having any impact on on the presidential election some there's been lots of questions does it help the president, does it hurt the president. from the national perspective, you're outside this region, do you think it has any impact at all? >> i think it's fairly neutral. i think as americans, we expect that on monday and tuesday and since then that we've set aside partisan politics and really focused on making sure first and foremost we send our prayer
upstate medical center blues $18 million a year. it's going to hurt the economy. so i voted to repeal the affordable care act. beyond that we voted for bipartisan support for three free trade agreements that will aid in increasing the number of exports from our district. >> we have time for rebuttal. what are your thoughts regarding the stimulus act? maffei: i think the recovery act was essential at the time. first of all we're lots of small tax cuts that were essential to those families. secondly, we kept police on the street, kept or teachers to me laid off in our classrooms from blowing up in size. and firefighters. so certainly we had to do something. the thing that i am really confused about, that's bad but there do the right thing on the taxes apparently. but now some of the economy is starting to be fine for millionaires and billionaires. i'm doing the wrong thing by asking them to pay their share. and get we need to balance the budget but where is the money going to come from? none of it adds up. >> moderator: urso, your reaction. rozum: i think would be immoral to r
well. it remains a strong part of the u.s. economy. >> stock the next 1% loop. >> the autos are a real bright spot. i like that gm call yesterday. in technology, we did have a couple of deals. they're merging it with a software company. but it's a pretty nice premium. you always like to see a 30-plus premium after all. >> they have some accounting issues. >> forget it if that's the case. if you say it, i believe it. we should also appoint bmc in the software area.$750 million going to buy back really quickly. by the end of the year, bmc has a lot of activists in that name. it was thought that you actually get a deal. i have spoken with a couple of them near the end of the year. you've got the likes of elliott and associates. you've got these core views in there. so it's a positive, they are changing the capital structure to a certain extent. >> we'll talk more about the ford numbers. phil, how big of a mess here? >> not a huge mess. they were slightly positive. 0.4%. what will be interesting to hear on the conference call is how much sandy slowed down sales, not only in the northeast,
priority and will work of -- with us to keep virginia's economy strong and national certainly were a lot of our jobs come from, as well as protecting our national security -- where a lot of the high-tech industry is coming from. so, it is very important we keep being -- the low taxes that we have and keep the 21st century economy going and governor romney is the kind of partner we can continue this good practice with. host: bryan ran, chairman of the virginia democratic party. -- brian moran, chairman of the virginia democratic party. president obama won in 2008. what is your strategy to repeat? guest: i agree with much of barbour said in terms of virginia. but governor tim kaine running brought a lot of of the prosperity to virginia. when they talk about less government and tax cuts, this isit looks like enormous cuts toyou can't have it both ways. they don't want to have any revenues to balance the books and what substantial cuts to government spending, that is what looks like in the commonwealth of virginia. when you make the draconian cuts thousands of lost jobs. they estimate 200,00
thought. the unemployment rate inched up from 7.8% to 7.9%. the economy added an average of 173,000 jobs per month since july. mitt romney issued a statement that said the unemployment rate is a sad reminder the economy is a virtual standstill for the jobless rate is higher than it was when president obama took office. we will hilton -- we will hear more about the unemployment number from both campaigns today. they are on the campaign trail with four days to go into the elections. president obama has three stops in ohio. coming up in about 15 minutes here on c-span, we will take you to the first stop of the day in hilltard outside columbus. the first lady michelle obama is campaigning in virginia today. at 5:30 eastern, we will take you to petersburg where she will be speaking with supporters. tonight on c-span, mitt romney and paul brian will be joined by their wives for a rally in west chester, ohio. another big names are appearing including condoleezza rice and senator john mccain this evening at 7:30 eastern and we will have that live on c-span. while we wait to hear from president o
. is this a case of slow and steady wins the race or another sign that the u.s. economy is nowhere near a real recovery? joining me now, chief global equity strategist at jefferies. tommy coming october jobs report, would you characterize it as more good were more bad news? speak what was more good news. we have had over the last quarter, factory order numbers as well over the last 24 hours but the key has been with head spinning the companies coming into the u.s. election and presumably ahead of the fiscal cliff discussions. that will still be a drag for growth alongside what we have seen from hurricane sandy and the gdp numbers. we'll still trend lower in the macro data pieces. employment data was actually slightly better, but in the whole scheme of things i think things are still slightly weaker toward the end of the year. lori: what i think in terms of gdp points? >> the estimates probably the early estimates probably shave off about a half a percent during this quarter which will mean early estimates about 1% gdp for fourth quarter. down about a half, it will have a meaningful impact unfo
what really is going on here. when president clinton said the economy is stupid, what really happened all the way back in 1980, we went through a 24 hours news cycle which you represent first-hand, the ability of the press to cover news has been enhanced. job reports, gdp reports, prior to 1980, with the advent of cnn and later yourselves, they got pushed aside. they were only covered in print. this will be decided in the middle west, on the jobs numbers, the gdp numbers, it will be decided in some of these swing states. dagen: does it make, speaking of swing states, the cincinnati -- that one pull from the cincinnati inquirer has them neck and neck 49-49. because of the weather, because they are canceling some events, do those ad dollars spent on tv in the ads that are running on radio and television, are they even more critical because of what is happening with the weather? >> it has been a tsunami of ads. it is just overwhelming. there is almost nothing you can do in this letter week that you have not already seen. all the tv time was bought up as early as labor day. i think friday
the unemployment numbers saying the increase in the unemployment rate is a sad reminder that the economy is at a virtual stand still. but when we look at the jobs that have been added over the last six months, we see the steady rise, going in the right direction. unemployment dropping to under 8%, staying there. does that take out the economic message of mitt romney at the kneecaps? >> not really. one, we're not seeing the type of job growth that we need to be coming back. that number has to be way over 200,000 per month. but what it's -- and the other thing is, when you dig down into those nebs, you look at the income numbers. people are not feeling it. their incomes are not rising. so when you look at this from a political point of view, it's what people feel. what's their emotional pocketbook reaction? and the fact is right now people are still hurting. so, again, both candidates are going to spin everything. i think it's already baked in. i don't think it's going to affect it much. if it went over 8%, it could have. but at the end of the day, i think that their messages, what they're
but we are in tough economic times and you can miss up to three payments because of the economy and still not lose the persistency discount and if you lose your job or laid off. you can miss payments up to a year and a half and still not lose that discount. prop 33 is good for california consumers. >> there is some folks, we are about to end this, folks in the consumer watch dog say it is not good for people that are unemployed. general he good for californians? >> 48 other states have this law, we actually had it in california from 1996 to 2002, and rates went down. and by the way, uninsured motorist. the number of uninsured motorist dropped in half. this is good public policy and which is why republicans and democrats are supporting. >> bipartisan and we'll look for the resultos election day. keep us up to date. >> thank you. >> what can early voting tell us about the outcome of the election. karl rove said way more than you think. hear from him coming up next. we told you about it next. al gore saying climate change is to blame for the monster storm sandy and the experts may have prove

, are asking why is it that an advanced economy do we have to live for more than a week without power? and i'm looking at your industry and thinking this is one of the most heavily regulated government intervened industries in the country and those two facts are not connected? >> they're not connected, because basically you cannot stop hurricane sandy from knocking down power lines. and from bringing water into the underground tunnels in new york where we have underground equipment. or creating major snowstorms out in west virginia. we've had everything but the locu locusts in this situation and we've brought in 60,000 -- 60,000 people have left their homes from as far away from california and all around the country to come east here to sit in staging areas throughout the storm to get together, to help to try and bring power back on. they're the unsung heroes. i don't know of any other industry that does that. >> what about these substations, which apparently are going to be a big problem. when can they get cleared up so the power can flow? >> that's another thing. when substation gets flood
